Microchips in humans

One positive aspect of microchipping humans is that eventually it will make us more efficient, there will be less room for human error, and will make people smarter. Some down sides are they invade people's privacies. Pastor thinks that this tech will eventually be forced to people. Another bad thing is in the future there will most likely be GPS in them.

In these circumstances the future will be dystopian.
